Covered Bridge Festival

The mission of the Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Festival is to promote Ashtabula County, to help in the preservation & maintenance of it's bridges by planning an annual family oriented festival in a rural community atmosphere and by providing education to the public about its historic covered bridges.

The Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Festival is held the 2nd weekend in October. We have 19 bridges in all. The shortest and the longest in the USA.

Special Update for the Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Festival Fans

The Ashtabula County Health Department Health Commissioner has determined that other than the county fairs which have been given clearance by the state to continue, social gatherings like festivals, concerts, etc. of more than 10 people are still prohibited per the state’s orders. Based on the Health Department's orders we are sad to announce that we will NOT be able to have the Covered Bridge Festival this year. We will be looking forward to seeing you all on October 8-9, 2021. For the most updated information please visit our Facebook page.
